The following guidelines pertain to the MegoMuseum Marketplace
This forum is available to our board members for the purpose of buying, selling and trading goods and merchandise.
Caveat Emptor The Megomuseum, its owners, adminsitrators, and moderators are not responsible for any transaction on this site, other than those in which they are individually involved as a buyer, seller, or trader.

Clicking an icon such as the For Sale (FS) button enables you to see only the Mego Items for sale.
It's common sense really, know your dealer. If you're new, check to see how many prior deals the member has had. Look them up in the good traders list, see their ebay profile. Ask people for references, get better pictures, get dated pictures, it's your money here.
If you are still in doubt pay using paypal with a credit card, that way you are protected.
Introduce Yourself While we believe most people to be honest, we have had the occasional bad egg. People can be suspicious of the new poster who is offering things for sale. Best to introduce yourself to the boards. Encourage those you deal with to give you notice in the Good Traders thread.
Please combine your threads, don't post individual items as threads, they will combined by a moderator and it's not pretty when we do it.
Use an Icon Marketplace Icons are at the bottom and tell people that you are selling (FS) looking for (W) Trading (FT) have a question ($?) or it is not a Mego item.
While we don't discourage Non Mego items like collectibles, comics, art, modern figures, books etc we do insist that you use the NM symbol.
Items that do not pertain to here (insurance, Amway, financial services, ) are deemed spam and are at no time permitted. Frequent violation of this rule may result in removal of poster from the forum. If you wouldn't bring it to a toy show to sell, then please don't bring it here. We do not permit "yard sale" type items, no baby clothes, car parts etc et all.
No adult material or weapons at any time. No exceptions.
Please close your thread after being sold, you have the power to do so in this forum. It helps us keep the place clean. A mod deletes the closed threads every day.
Give us an idea of what you are buying or selling in the thread title, so those who are interested will know what they are clicking into.
Nobody likes to get sent to the next page but be considerate when bumping your thread, no more than once every 48 hours please. Abuse of this will cause the thread to be sent away.
Do not post Ebay auctions here, we have an Auction Watch Forum for that.
Do NOT post sales items in other's threads. That is spam and you will be warned once, removed the next time.
Bootleg Items We are a popular site with a big reach, we ask that you do not post bootleg materials in the marketplace such as DVDs etc. Custom "one of a kind" hand made items are an exception.
A word of warning that this site is public and is regularly viewed by those whose job it is to protect copyrights. The Mego Museum claims no responsibility whatsoever for any consequences that may arise as a result of copyright infringement regarding a member's post. Members always post here at their own risk. We also reserve the right to remove a members post if we deem it necessary to do so especially in the light of receiving a formal and legal request from the copyright holder.
You may not sell or trade Megomuseum Trading Cards for goods here.
COMMUNICATE! Nearly two thirds of seller/buyer conflict stem from poor communication. Going to be late with that parcel? Tell the buyer, people are surprisingly easy to deal with if you keep them in the loop.
If an issue is arisen with other members, it is possible that your access to this forum will be halted until you remedy the situations. The staff doesn't step in on every transaction but will do so when a pattern appears.
